Bassist Cliff Williams has reportedly rejoined AC/DC
It seems that the classic AC/DC line-up post-Bon Scott and minus Malcolm Young is back together. In August 2018, lead guitarist Angus Young, rhythm guitarist Stevie Young, singer Brian Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd were each spotted and/or photographed at various instances while the band was reportedly recording a new studio album at its usual recording spot at The Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
The only holdout or question mark appeared to be bassist Cliff Williams but a photo was tweeted today on AC/DC Rides On‘s Twitter account of Williams with Johnson in Vancouver with the following caption:
“Me and the boys out to have some fun.. The final piece of the jigsaw falls into place. Cliff and Brian in Vancouver. looking good, lads.
